Bachelor of Arts in Communication

University of Washington-Tacoma

Students in the Communication major gain theoretical knowledge and practical skill in the mass media through an interdisciplinary and multicultural curriculum. Students will learn about the social, cultural, economic, political and historical context within which media operate. This major focuses on the full range of communication media —including radio, television, newspapers, magazines, film, advertising, public relations and the Internet—and how it pervades every aspect of our society. Students will study the considerable power media wield in mobilizing public opinion, in cutting across the boundaries between private and public life, and the strong role they play in national development.
